Sybil Jordan 1944-49

Sybil on the iron steps at Craig-y-nos

Some members of staff with a baby patient. Is that Auntie Maggie on the right?

Patients gather for a day trip to Swansea.

It is interesting to note that during the 1940’s patients had outings to Swansea.
Was this to the seaside or to the theatre?

I wonder if anyone knows how frequent these trips were? did children ever get to go on them?
Certainly from 1950 onwards such visits outside Craig-y-nos never happened which suggests that maybe the sanatorium regime in the late 40's was less rigid than in the early 50's. If this is so then it is surprising.

Does anyone have any first-hand knowledge of this?
